Hope :: Sitting in Silence

I couldn’t figure out what to write for today’s blog post. I made myself leave my cell phone and book in my bedroom while I sat out in the living room, pondering the topic.

My mind was so loud. I had a billion different thoughts and none of them felt right.

Rather than forcing myself to type a single word on my computer screen, I looked outside. I’m honestly not a huge fan of snow, but in that moment, it was the image I needed.

I sat here and felt my mind go silent.

I realized that I’ve been running and racing. I haven’t taken any time to just sit in the silence.

There’s a Bible verse that says, “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)

I never used to really understand that verse.

Today, though, those words are at the front and center of my mind.

When was the last time you sat and let your mind go quiet?

Meditation doesn’t work for me. I’m supposed to stop thinking? Okay. Then all I can think about is the fact that I’m not supposed to be thinking. Yeah, it doesn’t work out so well for me…

Staring out the window gave me that moment of stillness; that moment of internal silence.

It wasn’t some huge ‘aha’ moment. Just a moment of quiet stillness that I realized I wanted to share with you.

Take a moment.

Sit still.

Breathe.

Look at the beauty around you.

Sometimes it only takes a moment to realign your thoughts into some semblance of order. Sometimes you need longer to truly feel calm.

Take a moment just for yourself. Make it happen. I promise, it will be worth it!
